Editor's Note: Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. II).
Deposit on rights-of-way prohibited. No person shall deposit, by any means, snow and ice from private property onto any public streets, sidewalk, parking lot, alley or any other type of public right-of-way. All existing sidewalks shall be kept clear of ice, snow and debris, regardless of condition, width or location.
Location. All utility and service lines, including but not limited to sewer, water, electric, telephone, and cable television, when buried within the Town road right-of-way shall be buried within the outermost five feet of the Town road right-of-way.
Variances. If installation of such utility line at the location set forth in Subsection A requires the removal of substantial tree coverage, so as to cause an adverse environmental impact, any person may petition the Town Board to install or construct a utility line other than on the outermost five feet of the Town road right-of-way. Upon such petition, the Town Board shall view the premises and, if it finds that such adverse environmental impact would in fact occur, may permit the installation of the utility line at a different location as determined by the Town Board.
Permit. No such service or utility lines, including but not limited to sewer, water, electric, telephone and cable television, may be buried or otherwise installed within the Town road right-of-way without first receiving a permit therefor from the Town Board. Application for such permit shall be made to the Town Clerk/Treasurer.
Except as otherwise provided, any person found to be in violation of any provision of this chapter shall be subject to a penalty as provided in Chapter 1, § 1-4 of this Code.
